Hamlet: Language and Writing (Hardback)

Dympna Callaghan

-  

Arden Student Guides offer a new type of study aid which combines lively critical insight with practical guidance on the critical and writng skills students need to develop in order to engage fully with Shakespeare's texts. The books' core focus is on langauge: both understanding and enjoying Shakespeare's rich and complex dramatic lanaguage, and the student's own critical language and how she can improve and develop this to become a critical writer. This lively and informative guide reveals Hamlet as marking a turning point in Shakespeare's use of language and dramatic form as well as addressing the key problem at the play's core: Hamlet's inaction. It also looks at recent critical approaches to the play and its theatre history, including the recent David Tennant/RSC Hamlet on both stage and TV screen.
